<<I don't know if anyone here is aware of it yet, but a company in 
California just came out with a digital attachment that they claim will 
fit any 35mm camera and convert it into a megapixel digicam.  Check it 
out at>>

I've had several conversations with them regarding the use of this 
device with a Leica M.  The concerns are primarily the loading mechanism 
of the M having a discreet "thickness" slot where the film is inserted.  
They have not been able to confirm that the digital sensor will slide 
into the film chamber area due to the sensor thickness on the production 
units.  They did assure me that they would be testing it and will keep 
us informed.
